Virtual Reality Visors, Goggles and Glasses

Virtual Reality Visors, Goggles and Glasses are electronic devices resembling conventional glasses, that incorporate small stereoscopic screens positioned in front of the wearers eyes, giving them the impression that they are surrounded by, and totally immersed in, the computer generated environment they are viewing.

Virtual Reality Visors are usually used to explore computer generated environments (imaginary worlds or computer models of places in the real world), although they can be also used to watch conventional films, DVD and Blu-ray with a higher level of immersion. Most modern Virtual Reality Visors support 3d and most provide additional sensory information, such as sound through speakers or headphones. Some advanced, haptic systems also include tactile information, generally known as force feedback, in medical and gaming applications.

Increasingly, virtual reality technology is being married together with real-time views of the world around the user, either through the use of cameras or by projecting computer generated video-feed onto a see-through screen in front of the viewers eyes, to create "augmented reality" devices.

Utilising Virtual Reality Visors to navigate visually, users can interact with a virtual environment or a virtual artifact (VA) either through the use of standard input devices such as a keyboard and mouse, or through multimodal devices such as a wired glove, the Polhemus boom arm, and omnidirectional treadmills. The simulated environment can be similar to the real world, for example, in simulations for pilot or combat training, or it can differ significantly from reality, as in VR games.

Virtual reality is often used to describe a wide variety of applications commonly associated with immersive, highly visual, 3D environments: the development of CAD software, graphics hardware acceleration, head mounted displays, database gloves and miniaturization have helped popularise virtual reality.
